Subject: Nice AUD recording
Rolfe's position elimated much of the distant boom many AUD tapes have. Nice performace from the band. Brent's organ can be distinctly heard, as well as distinct bass and drums. Well done.
Many NAK700 mic recordings from '80-'81 are very good...check 'em out, especially stuff from Barry Glassberg (taper).
Subject: Unusual combos but a usual fantastic Spring 81 show
Besides the stellar recording, this show is tight and fun; high energy. I just downloaded and look forward to crankin' it up (including the bass) in my car.
Subject: Listen to the Thunder Shout!!
This is the 2nd show I dosed at and the Bird Song sort of like a heavy, sweet wave of sound floated up and all around me as I was getting off. It launched such a nice, happy vibe for me...Then the Terrapin opening the 2nd set was HUGE for me, I was just really getting to know this tune at that time and I jumped in with both feet at the opening chords. I remember being far back on the floor, before there was a tapers section and dancing crazy, spinning and feeling perfect. The jam at the end was intense and powerful. Then Playin in the Band, all I remember is that it was just music, music, music and more pure music that seemed to be endless as it folded over on it self, upside down insdie out, opening and closing like a brilliant colorful flower, twisting and diving and rising happily and playin as free as I felt, what a time, what a truly magical psychedlic night.....the 1st night where it was like that for me, this night stuck with me very well.
A far as collecting this tape, absolutely!! I think it's very clean and has a good snap for most of the songs.. go for it! Raise you bass control a touch, if you feel... Otherwise very nice.
Subject: Perfect Let It Grow
The highlight of the first set is the Let It Grow, which I would describe as a uniquely perfect specimen. The Dead show themselves as a force of nature in this song, moving and turning together like the wind and rain in a storm. Jerry lays it down at the end of the core jam with an utter certainty that is breathtaking.
The first half of the second set features timeless excursions into the infinite. I saw this show live, and the next day when I told my high school teacher about it, she said that I had heard the music of the spheres.
